If they w o u l d be willing to adapt a national organization to the standards of our private Christian school, and they believe that this organization would truly o f f e r m o r e to H o p e than is already available here, then they have m y support," Laura Koltis ( ' 0 7 ) , local Greek, said. " L o c a l s are rooted in H o p e ' s history and the mission of H o p e College. All of our creeds include a piece about f a i t h — a n d that is an important part of our organizations," Borgeson said. A n o t h e r difference is the connections that a sorority m e m b e r can make. 4t A national sorority could bring all sorts of connections and prestige to Hope, and could really m a k e H o p e a m o r e well-known college.

Much like the Pull and Nykerk, there a r e n ' t Dorians or SIBs on any other c a m p u s and it makes Hope different than any other private liberal arts

Koltis said. "1 might have rushed [a national sorority] my freshmen year, since after college you have so m a n y more opportunities to get h o o k e d u p with other alumni f r o m around the country. There w o u l d just be a wider network of people w h o w o u l d help you out, since you had the same sorority in c o m m o n , " Kristin J o h n s o n ('07), local Greek, said. "It would bring a h u g e scale network with a database that contains names from all over the world and provide career opportunities for Hope grads," said Lauren Engel ( ' 0 6 ) , a student who has been pushing for a national sorority at H o p e for several years. " T h o u g h networking is a strong point of ours, our main focus is on sisterhood and philanthropy,"

"Just look what happened with my w o r k , " he said. T h o u g h intimately involved with " C o f f e e Bar," Lein has only attended o n e rehearsal. " I t ' s not about me. It's about the amazing cast and people putting this on that deserve the credit," he said. "I was only at rehearsal for an hour, and I felt like a father intruding on his d a u g h t e r ' s slumber party. I trust them to bring these characters to life." Stock, the p l a y ' s director, has been impressed with the work the cast and crew has put in to the show. " T h e dedication f r o m all of the students involved in this project has been amazing. T h e show is entirely written, directed, produced, designed and acted by students w h o have devoted m a n y hours and ideas to this project. It is very exciting to see this work be brought to life," she said. Lein encourages people to arrive early to the studio theater in the basement of DeWitt where tickets will be sold at the door for S2. Free c o f f e e from L e m o n j e l l o ' s will be served.

rie Graves ( ' 0 7 ) , local G r e e k , said. "It is nice to be a part of a chapter that has deep roots here at Hope, and only Hope. You might have a chapter with the s a m e letters, but they w o n ' t be the s a m e as your chapter here. It is nice to be different and unique, and unlike any other chapter in the U.S.," Emily Liang, '05 Recruitment Chair, said. W h a t effect would a national organization have on the local ones? M a n y locals are concerned with the governing implications of having both national and local sororities on campus, but at this point, nothing can be for certain. " B e i n g local, the school has more control over Greek life, and can settle matters and aid the organizations in a quicker fashion, than if w e had to also answer to national headquarters," L i a n g said. " O t h e r schools in our division have had both local and national organizations and they have coexisted very well," Claus said. Students and administrators alike have voiced valid concerns and benefits of introducing a national sorority to both sides of the issue from G r e e k s and n o n - G r e e k s alike. T h e girls are anxiously awaiting H o p e ' s decision to be determined this winter.
